If you relegate the laundry baskets to the laundry room, you’re missing out, I’ll tell you why!
1. I’m sure you’ve all seen reuseable grocery bags and a lot of you probably use them, but how about a laundry basket for the ultimate in “green grocery bags.” It’s designed to hold stuff and IS easily portable so keep one in the back of your car, and load it up with groceries directly from your cart. You can carry the whole basket into the house and stash it back in there when you’re done.
2. Use a laundry basket to collect weeds and clippings as you work outside and then you can dump it when you’re finished. In the off season, use the basket to corral your hose and sprayer in the garage or shed.
3. Speaking of corralling, I collect little gifts and trinkets throughout the year so I always have a gift on hand when I need one. I keep them all in a laundry basket on a shelf so I know right where they are, plus I keep a few gift bags in there so I can grab, stash and go in a hurry!
4. Heading out on a car trip to a sunny destination? Fill a laundry basket with towels and swim gear. You won’t need to dig through suitcases when you arrive.
Plus, you’ll have a spot to store dirty laundry during your trip.
